Update.exe not removed from system on uninstall [Windows]


[Windows 10] Update.exe not removed from system/startup on uninstall.

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Uninstall Mailspring.
  2. Open task manager
  3. Click startup
  4. Update.exe is still present (it exists under AppData\Local\Mailspring)

Expected behavior

The updater should be removed when mailspring is removed.


  • OS and Version: Windows 10
  • Mailspring Version: unsure - updater metadata says file version1.7.9.0 (mailspring was removed months ago).

Additional Context

Removed mailspring months ago and came across the updater in my startup today.
